Cask conditioned at The Turf Tavern with Fin. Gold with white head. I was prepared to slate this, but it just goes to show, it was really very good. Hoppy and lemony with good bittering, dry and refreshing. I really liked it.

Fin (10907) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - NOV 21, 2008
Cask at The Turf, Oxford in the company of Glen 09-11-08. I finished on this beer before cycling home in the most appalling weather. Pours golden in colour with more of a powder ginger than root ginger profile. The lemon is there and does show itself but it really takes a back seat to the ginger, that said this is a well balanced beer, very refreshing and with a nice dry tangy finish, very nice indeed.

haddonsman (1234) - Derby, Derbyshire, ENGLAND - JUL 29, 2008
Bottled from The Real Ale Shop, Branthill, Norfolk. Slightly thick gold body with a rocky white head (bit of a heavy handed pour). Aroma of tart hops and slight washy ginger. Ginger swings through in the first sip but it’s still not hardcore; the hops are at the fore and buzz on the tongue. Think thin biscuit flavours rather than Ginger Nuts. Warms to a lovely lemonish lick, again not too blunt. A well balanced beer, complimentary flavours and a good itching feel in the mouth that wouldn’t be amiss from a Belgian bottle. Tasty stuff for the first of the sixty bottles of Norfolk beer I have to work my way through this summer.

ForlornHope (536) - Hampshire, ENGLAND - AUG 5, 2016
Bottle at home. Pale orange colour with a large white head. This fades a bit, but the carbonation keeps a good head of foam. Good aroma: peppery hop with citrus notes and spicyness from the ginger. Sweet malt to start, backed up with a firm bitterness. Flavours of citrus and ginger throughout. Lively on the tongue and with a very long dry finish. The lemon and ginger is present from aroma to aftertaste and never overpowers. A very nice beer.

thebeertourist (5189) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUN 13, 2009
Bottle from Beers of Europe. Hazy, deep golden with a big off-white head. Fruity hop aroma with noticeable lemon notes. Refreshing lemony flavours balanced by dry spiciness and hops. Ginger kicks in towards the finish. Advanced summer ale.

johndoughty (5543) - cheslyn hay, West Midlands, ENGLAND - AUG 29, 2002
A refreshing bottle conditioned beer from a micro.in Norfolk England. Initial citrus impact leads to a gentle, fruity after taste.

3.4
StueyD (1586) - Heacham, Norfolk, ENGLAND - MAR 14, 2006
A light golden beer with a thin white head. The nose is distinctly citrusy with a hint of ginger. The taste is again of citrus fruits, almost like an old fashioned lemonade(!), the ginger is strong in the flavour, there is a slight dry hoppiness in the aftertaste. (Draught - from the Brewery’s tent @ The Royal Norfolk Show, 2004)
